Prep roundup

CHELAN — When it comes to defense, it doesn’t get much better than the Chelan girls basketball team’s performance on Saturday night. The Goats shut out Tonasket in both the first and fourth quarters to beat the Tigers 49-15 in Caribou Trail League play.

Trophy contenders from the region

Here is The World’s glance at high school basketball teams from NCW that have the potential to come up with a trophy from their state tournament:

Midseason report card for NCW prep basketball

The big guns are gone, several leagues are dominated by one or two teams, and even the number of ranked teams has dwinded to a couple. High school basketball in North Central Washington is lacking in firepower this season.

B leagues roundup

WILBUR — Playing with five guys all game, the Mansfield Kernels steamed out to a nine-point lead after three quarters and hung on for a 55-52 road victory at Wilbur-Creston on Tuesday night in Central Washington 1B play. “We just aren’t very deep, and by the fourth quarter those five were getting pretty pooped,” Mansfield coach Ric Bayless said. “We were able to outlast their press. We kept our composure and finished it.”

B league hoops notebook: Mindful of big things

COULEE DAM — A talented 6-foot-7 post, a number of stifling defenses, and a quality supporting cast. It’s all added up to the Lake Roosevelt boys basketball team emerging as the class of the Central Washington 2B League’s North Division. Led by lanky junior Ty Egbert, the Raiders are 10-2 overall and 5-0 in league play, and figure to challenge for a state title when March rolls around.

Prep hoops recap

QUINCY — Both Quincy basketball teams had a chance to tie Grandview in the final minutes of their games Saturday night. Instead, both teams were on the losing ends of 51-47 scores.

Entiat girls pull into second place

ENTIAT — Riverside Christian roared back in the fourth quarter Friday, outscoring Entiat 21-7. Fortunately for the Tigers, they’d built an enormous lead over the first three quarters and held on for the 63-49 victory. The Tigers were able to pull ahead by clamping down on Kendra Stamates in the first half.

CCA boys shut down Mansfield’s shooters

WENATCHEE — The Cascade Christian Academy Wolverines were already burned by Mansfield’s 3-point shooting once this season. They weren’t about to let it happen again.

Kernels beat CCA

MANSFIELD — The Mansfield boys basketball team had three players in double figures, and used a strong second quarter to take care of Cascade Christian Academy 58-47 in a league game Monday. Macen McLean led the 5-3 Kernels with 20 points and 12 rebounds, and Kyle Sima chipped in 19 against CCA, which fell to 0-3 with the loss.

Man arrested after stabbing

MANSFIELD — Deputies on Sunday forced their way into a home and arrested a 45-year-old man after a woman said she had been assaulted with a knife. A Douglas County deputy arrived after an 11:35 a.m. 911 call and found the front door open, a man inside holding a knife and a woman with blood on her shirt, said Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal.

NCW Basketball Showcase: Ferris surprises WHS

WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee girls basketball team knew that Ferris hadn’t won a game yet this season entering the squads’ contest Wednesday at the Town Toyota Center on the final day of the US Bank NCW High School Basketball Showcase. In retrospect, that probably wasn’t a good thing for the Panthers to know.

Showcase tourney at TTC grows to 36 teams

WENATCHEE — The NCW High School Basketball Showcase is back, and it’s bigger than ever. The Showcase at the Wenatchee’s Town Toyota Center will feature 18 games over three days starting Monday, expanding from its previous format of 12 games.

Eastmont gets nod in all-league

The Eastmont football team turned itself around this season, going from a perennial middle-of-the-pack finisher to one win away from a league title and a state tournament berth. As a result, two of the biggest reasons for the turnaround have some hardware to show for it.

Prep basketball roundup: Manson wins rematch

MANSON — After losing to Entiat in its season opener, the Manson boys basketball team did not have to wait long to get its revenge. Due to a scheduling quirk, the Trojans played both the first and second games of their season against the Tigers, and they got a much better outcome the second time around.

Snow forecast for mountains, NCW

SEATTLE — Forecasters say a series of weather systems moving through the Northwest will dump 1 to 3 feet of snow in the Washington Cascades by Friday afternoon. The National Weather Service says heavy snow also will fall through Wednesday on the east slopes of the Cascades and northeast Washington. Snow accumulations are expected to be 2 to 4 inches, mainly north of Wenatchee and on the Waterville plateau. “The heaviest snow will likely fall in the Okanogan valley and the Okanogan highlands,” according to the weather service.
